It’s time for another set of cards that the Snipin’ Sisters team created for this week’s challenge. The sketch was a tall and skinny card based on this idea. Be sure to checkout more great ideas at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com.
My card had a whimsical theme with a new bee diecut I’d just received. I also had recently purchased the honeycomb paper so I put my idea into motion. Here is my card:
Paper: honeycomb Ella & Viv, polka dot Doodlebug, black dot Stampin’ Up
Die Cut: Bee Triplets from Sizzix
Stamps: ‘Fly Away & clouds Hello Sunshine Lawn Fawn, bee on envelope Buggin Out Alley Way
Robyn struggled a bit with her creation, but her final project was well worth the effort. She mistook the flower buds for cherries and had to do some adjustment with her circles. As usual, she recovered in fine style.
Paper: Pretty Petals Stampin’ Up, red glitter & card base Michael’s
Diecut: Label Card Thinlit Stampin’ Up
Karen’s clean and simple look was as quick as it was easy to create. A nice card that would be easy to CASE.
Paper: Dotted Blossoms Cottage Living, Mint Macaron Stampin’ Up
Sentiment: Living Tree SU
That’s it for this week. We will not be posting next week as the ‘Sisters’ will be heading to the mountains for a reunion of sorts with our traveling band of retirees. It is our 15 year of adventure that has taken us far and wide. Maybe there will be some pictures of our escapades. Stay tuned.
Yea! It’s time again for our Monday challenge with the group over at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com. Here is the sketch we worked from this week:
There were lots of layers this week and the Three Amis were up for a good stretch of our creative talents. We create our cards separately and through the internet have a “show & tell” of sorts upon completion. Here are our cards:
Karen chose some great summer colors that work well together. Her embossing of the purple and green papers give this card depth and interest. The DSP is from Recollection’s Watercolor Dots and the embossing folders are all from Sizzix. The circles are from her 1″, 1 1/2″, 2″, and 21/2″ Stampin’ Up punches. She even lined her envelope circles. That attention to detail is what sets her card apart.
Robyn’s card is all about summer too with her honeycomb looking background and cute bees. The background papers were from the scrap box and the great ribbon was from a gift she had received from her daughter. (Robyn is a great saver of unusual ribbons and paper.) The bee paper is English Garden from Stampin’ Up as are the stamps, 6-Sided Samples, and she used her SU hexagon punch to cut them out. If you look closely you will see a small wooden bee from Creatology. More great attention to detail!
Finally, my card is a more graphic interpretation of this week’s sketch. I used white cardstock as my base scoring the bottom half at 1/4″ increments with my scoreboard. (If you look closely you will just be able to see it.) I then used Stampin’ Up’s Everyday Chic DSP and Papertrey Ink’s Squiggles diecut for the black embellishments. My sentiment is SU’s Watercolor Words stamped in Real Red. I simply fussy-cut the ‘hope’ and popped it up on dimensionals.
We hope you enjoyed our creations and will check out more great designs at the Mojo Monday site.
Has it only been a week since our last Mojo? Somehow it seems longer….it must be all the summer heat. The 3 Amis were back in fine style however, creating cards from this design:
I used an embossing folder and included an acrylic circle that can be removed and used as a magnet with the application a bit of magnetic tape. My paper is from Stampin’ Up’s Farmer’s Market, Everyday Chic, and Pretty Petals Designers Series Stack. My acrylic disc is from Epiphany Crafts. The ‘Hello’ sentiment is a diecut from Papertrey Ink.
Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, and English Garden from Stampin’ Up were Karen’s choices for her card today. She also included an acrylic piece in a star shape to complete her design.
Robyn’s bright creation includes Stampin’ Up paper too. Her choice…. Sweet Li’l Things. The bright blue background is from an unknown source. Can you see which turtle Robyn used to make into an embellishment for her card? We all used Epiphany Crafts for our acrylic discs and agreed we need to use them more.
It’s time again for another challenge. Here is the sketch we had to work from:
Karen calls her card “All About Summer”. From the blue gingham and red cherries to the black ants marching across everything, it does look like summer! She included more cherries and gingham on her envelope for a nice coordinated look.
Paper: American Crafts
Embellishments: cherries Jolee
Washi Tape: Doodlebug Designs
My card is a bit on the wild side. These fun prints are from Stampin’ Up’s Go Wild. I’m really enjoying many of the neutral color patterns in this set. They are easy to work with when combined with SU’s new In Color, Tip Top Taupe.
